About the Event

YWCA USA is proud to debut our roundtable discussion (fireside chat), From Reckoning to Resolution, a series designed to feature fearless movers, innovative shakers, rainmakers, passionate trailblazers, and sartorial inspirations who are working to organize, disrupt, and destroy barriers around issues like racial justice, gender equity, equal pay, domestic violence, entrepreneurship, and more.

At YWCA, we work to serve as a catalyst in the racial equity movement and to support women of color through a variety of programming and resources. This work is focused on awakening individuals and communities as well as helping them to develop the awareness, willingness, and tools to drive change in themselves and in the institutions we all share.
